There is no Nina. Maybe there was a Nina before, but since Laura and Jason Mattingly bought Nina's in 2012, she has been 86ed. There are three things on Nina's small menu that go up against the area's other breakfast superstars: the blueberry pancakes, the housemade corned beef hash and a devilishly sumptuous crab cake Benedict. The pancakes defy physics, being both ethereally light and puffy at the same time they sit densely in your gut like a sponge. One of these blueberry-studded babies is enough to induce stupor. The crisp bacon and crusty-edged home fries make the breakfast-all-day approach seem wise here.
Hours: 7 a.m.- 2 p.m., breakfast all day, lunch starting at 11 a.m.
